. >> the american defense secretary announcing that the u.s. was joining germany and benevolence in providing patriot missiles. does this risk raising the stakes? >> i see these as predominantly a defensive move. i think the assad regime knows it is a defensive move. they can theoretically be used to shoot down planes, this is probably not going to happen. they are far too expensive to use for that purpose. >> syria's most important ally has already responded, saying that the american missile deployment creates extra tension and is not help for a diplomatic solution. it does put the spotlight again on the volatile a syrian-turkish border. an area given support to the rebels. the patriot missile sites have not been disclosed. all will be under nato command and control. >> significant elements in syria. four days, they had been celebrating in p'yongyang after a successful missile launch. today was the biggest display yet. hundreds of thousands were summoned to show their enthusiasm to the world. the launch came just 8 months after a similar attempt ended in failure. we report now from seoul. >>
be in turned in nazi germany in 1942 but feared torture and that is the purpose of the suicide pills in his case. he didn't use them, told me he flushed them down the toilet eventually. that he ordered them is deeply significant. both men later preoccupied themselves and overwhelmed anybody who would read them or listen to them with great fear is, great fears in capital letters, that the new deal and all that followed was part of the gigantic communist conspiracy, kennan said nuclear-weapons could not be developed and deployed without placing at risk the fate of the earth. the significantly i think were farmers. chambers in maryland, kenna in pennsylvania, finding physical labor associated with that profession, limited refuge that made life and especially family life possible. finally, both were great writers. even if the writing is repetitious. and the idea was compelling against time and space and as reagan was suggesting it will do that in the future. each man produce classical works that will be red as far as we can see. one of which we celebrate here today. in his review in the new cri
other countries like germany, the middle-class is in better shape. better trading against the world, companies are making money. a lot of things that we heard that were not possible in america are actually happening in germany, and their wages have gone up five times faster than ours. there is something wrong inside the american political and economic system. that is what this book is about. >> hendricks mitt is the author. thank you for being an book tv. >> and now bailout, an inside account of how washington abandoned mainstream while rescuing longstreet. he argues that the $700 billion troubled asset relief program or t.a.r.p. program was mishandled. about 40 minutes. >> joining as now his kneele brodsky, a former inspector general for tart -- t.a.r.p. you saw him earlier on a panel. here's the cover of his best seller called "bailout." how did you become the inspector general? >> it is kind of a strange thing, especially for me. i was a federal prosecutor up in the southern district of new york. i spent the years leading into the financial crisis during securities fraud cases an

, and then a continuing continuum to germany and back to the states in the c130's, the flying icu's which the air force has, which you are safer in the air at 30,000 feet than you are in 90 percent of the icu's in this country. they do not lose patients over the atlantic. they do not lose patients over the pacific and, remember, they transport them within days, days, of them being critically injured. the patient will wake up for the first time in a hospital in the states. that is often the first time they wake up. that's how fast the medevac system goes. wouldn't it be a shame to waste that compartment of skills on a mass casualty event that occurs here. well, we have hospitals and they're going to be okay and we have a robust provider system, and you do, one that the cities and counties and states should be proud of. because they get it. they get it out here. but the hospitals, they will have to figure it out. but what if you are a country and all of a sudden you have an earthquake and by the way the one thing you need most because of that earthquake, the hospital infrastructure, is gone. can

in similar countries like germany, 170 and canada 150. there is a reason for that. >> what would you like to see in terms of specific gun control? >> there a number of pieces of legislation we have been pushing. no reasonable gun owner who is a sportsman can object to bans on assault weapons made only to kill as many human beings as possible like in a military situation. no one can object to a ban on the sale of large ammunition clips so you can't reload. no one can object to microstamping of card ridges to trace the murder weapon. no one can object to eliminating the gunshot exception so even if you buy a gun at a gun show, they still have to check your background to make sure they are not selling to someone on a terrorist watch list or mentally unstable person or a felon. those ares we should do. >> we had a heated debate on a previous incident. two things happened in 1996. athere was a massacre in tasmania in which 35 people were killed. the australians was right wing and friends of george w. bush and brought in draconian laws after that. he brought in rifles and shotguns. as a result

question. these are american units coming from places like germany and netherlands. i was surprised it might take the end of january. that's reason i said it was symbolic saying we're sporting them. who knows what will happen in syria over the next couple weeks or months or even before these batteries are in place. there could be certainly some problems due to the lack, this vulnerability they think is developing for turkish airspace and turkish sovereignty. adam: turkey is an ally. they are a member of nato. they have a strong army. syria, on the other hand, as we said, the rebels are aligned with islamic powers that may not be friendly to the united stes. it sure looks as if this is, at least gives a open door, a foot, not a toe into turkey should we need to have a greater force on the border with syria. wouldn't that be a logical conclusion? >> that is something to think about but i don't think we're going there. i don't think this association is going there. adam, they have 20 months to do something. they have done basically nothing. they recently recognized consortium of groups
states. a 9000 people killed and united states and germany was at second place at 170. we are going to hear the debate that it is not done that' gone back kill people--but it is the will to kill people. not guns. >> we have a system that is broken as far as how people can get guns it is too easy in the united states. there are loopholes. people say the mentally ill should not get them up but if your adjudicated from the mentally ill you cannot get one. however, the question is that you have to be adjudicated. not only that, you can be mentally ill and make it through the system. the guy who shot gabrielle giffords was and institutionalized. he was in a state and local data base that was not shared with the federal background system. he was able to purchase a gun and killed six people that nearly killed gabrielle giffords. if you go to a gun show there will also not to a back room check. and the supreme court held in 2008 that the second amendment means that an individual has the right to own a gun. with a severe crimp on what the feds can do. if you have a constitutional right to ow

in the united states in the year, 150 or 70 in germany. sigh was talking to michael moore last night. australia, a country of hunters, after a terrible mass killing in 1986, in a moment, they turn around, gun rocontrol, it goes zero. there are two issues here, one is gun controls and the cuts taking place around mental illness. we don't know particularly in this case, what adam lanza's condition was, but we know if we look at the string of killings takes place from aurora, on back, not to mention what happened this week. this is a very serious issue, that the issue of mental illness, its stigma, and the lack of support and our problems with health care in this country, you put these two together, and it is a perfect storm. gun control and helping to support people who are mentally ill in this country. >> what i find so disturb sergeant reaction is a always around the additional criminalizing, of those, least involved in the attack and the deaths. so we talk specifically about the importance of having more security in schools. so now 5-year-olds -- an armed policeman is what 5-year-olds need. ye
